dedicated their lives to serving the others. i mother was a special-education teacher. [cheers] my dad worked on the army base. my parents were crystal clear about what they wanted for us and that was an education. so a lot of what we did to give back was in the educational arena. i love that president obama has the same values. he knows that, for our nation, and education cannot be a luxury. it will strengthen the middle- class and strengthen the work force that will keep us innovated. if you're thinking about how you can search or how you can follow the president's example to honor this national day of service, start with this. make a difference in one child's life. mentor a student. donate a book to a library, donate supplies to a school. volunteer at an afterschool program. i am here because i have someone looking out for me. i'm telling you how important my education was. someone was pushing me to succeed. but i want to make sure the next generation has that as well. so last year, when i launched the eva longoria foundation, i focused on helping advance latinas in education. a bel
read your articles every day for the past year or two. you have educated me. you have enhanced my knowledge of a lot of things that i have heard that comes out of the republicans or conservative talk-show hosts by criticize obama. after reading your article, i found out what i hear on a rush limbaugh and the michael savage show was absolutely a lie. host: you give us an example? caller: a whole solyndra tuition. i found out the facts by reading your article in our local paper. the whole solyndra thing started with the bush administration. guest: thanks for the kind words. i am glad that you are reading them in your local paper one thing we are trying to do, as much as we can, is get our work out in different ways. we have partnerships with television stations. have partnerships with newspapers. the one you are read for into in atlanta uses the truth-o-meter on state and local officials. i am glad to hear you are reading our work and their work and i am happy our word is getting out host:politifact looked at issues -- looks at issues like energy. what to do find overall? guest: a l
. there is a disadvantage to a piecemeal bill, if you pass, for example, issues for educated people to get a visa, and they're taking care of, you lose a certain amount of support for the other issues. i do not think we should decide that. i think the senator is doing a great service by raising this issue. i think our colleagues at this meeting, i met this morning with the person -- he and i actually talk a lot. i believe we should move forward on all of the arrangements so that the hill will develop an understanding about all of these issues and finally decide whether they will do it in one, too, or three pieces. that is the least of our worry. the fact is they do it. we will continue to talk about a comprehensive bill. >> i am delighted that senator rubio is helping folks take the issue of immigration reform as seriously as he is taking it. he is providing leadership on that and we are appreciative. i think it is great to see movement on both sides of the aisle. whether or not it is comprehensive or individual pieces is to be determined by leadership in the house and senate in consultation with the presi
of it. where to begin? no matter what your leanings are and whether you know about education or not, let's turn to some of the language you are talking about. investing in very young children is the best investment you can make. it has the greatest return on investment. we know that because the first years of life are the most important for cognitive, social, and emotional development. you are only two years old ones. that is the most significant window of time. which brings me to the next point, yes, we have class warfare. those who are poor are completely left out of the national dialogue on poverty and hunger. that is a bipartisan effort, to keep people who are poor out of the national dialogue. that is why i work with low income women to be able to take photographs and provide direct testimony on their experiences with raising children in poverty, how to break cycles with poverty, and there are so many conversations happening. this concept of violence and the trail. people have been silenced for so many years. -- betrayal. people have been silenced for so many years. poverty is solva

[applause] >> i just have to add one thing to that -- one point i will add, to deny this to children is an act of thievery, but it is worse than stealing a car. this is an irreversible theft. you never get to live the second year of your life again. thatthis is it -- you get it once. then it is gone forever. i think the president fails to act on this aggressively, that dramatically, prophetically, to get this for us quickly -- i think is not just a budgetary issue. i think it is a theological abomination, a crime against the innocent. >> i agree. [applause] i say all the time, quoting -- the conversation could not be more timely. i sell the time, quoting dr. king, that budgets are moral documents. you can say what you say, but you are what you are. we know who you are when you put your budget on the table. we can see what your budget
's fought for kids, for education. she was behind helping the don't tell abolishing the don't ask don't tell. i'm really hopeful for the next four years, honestly. because i think the republicans might derail the president, and every step he tries to take. because it's almost like they want him to fail. they just try to make him fail and when you make your president fail, you make our country fail and the people elected him. i mean not just by a little, a lot. so that's the voice of the people. so let's get on the people wagon and make the country a great country again. you said the things most interesting to you and most important to you are being a musician and being an activist. especially when you're fighting for equality. have you seen some great strides. >> at least our president evolved. you don't always have a president that evolved. evolution is great. because information, sometimes you don't have the information. so to me, that's great. like you know, the gun control thing. listen, nobody wants to take all your guns away. but is there a reason why you need a 30-bullet you know, mag

thought here's where i differ. here's where i don't. i thought it was really educational and very provocative. >> ifill: did this president come across a chastened second-termer or an ambitious one in >> he came across different to me. missing from the president was what i had seen several times during the campaign and in the presidency in recent years there was sort of a pet lance. there was a pursed lips look. that was missing. this is a happy warrior. i thought a far more appealing figure in that sense. there seems since the 6th of november to be a sense of resolution about him. he seems more certain or sure-footed than he had been in the past. i can't imagine the president i heard today doing what he did on health care, turning it over to the congress for a year to work its will in the committees and back and forth. i mean this is somebody who is a lot more forceful executive i'd say >> ifill: maybe that's what informed... when he was quoting jefferson and saying that our truths are self-evident but not self-executing >> which is one of the best lines. he was constrained for t
are going, in terms of the percentage of gdp, what we spend on education, what we spend on health research, what we spend on so many necessary programs in this country is going to go down. the trend line is already there. what the republicans are essentially saying is to push it further. have further consequences in terms of health research. does that make sense? do the american people want that? no. we have to have balance. the problem within the republican conference of the house is there is too much imbalance/ host: do you agree with this editorial -- guest: no one is suggesting relying only on taxation of the very wealthy. that is a sham target. no one is saying that. but let me point out, if we look at what has happened to middle- income families -- and i mentioned that there now dipping into their retirement on a massive basis. in 2010, the top 1% received over 90% of the income growth. that represents basically a very -- i represent basically a very middle-class district. i know the struggle to stay above water, in some cases. all we're asking for is balance. host: on the spending s
graduate sooner. remember this rule of thumb -- >> your total education debt at graduation should be less than your annual starting salary. >> think about that for a minute. but remember, student loan debt isn't insurmountable. you can pay it back. just ask america's most famous student borrower and chief. >> look, we were lucky enough to land good jobs. but even with those great jobs that we had, we only finished paying off our student loans about eight years ago. think about that -- i'm the president of the united states. [ laughter ] >> see, the president can even laugh about his loans now. but this is no joke. a college education is an investment. maybe the most important one you'll ever make. this week i had the honor of speaking to students at knox college, a private liberal arts college, in gailsburg, illinois. i told them there are four available workers for every job in this country. i said, look around you, look around you in that room. you got to beat out three of those classmates just to get hired. you still have a golden ticket. you're just going to have to work harde
and spelled it out. healthcare, energy, education. he has done healthcare. that's fairly radical. 18% of the economy. now he is talking about energy. the second thing. if you took an outsider and said what is the main issue of our time? it's the crisis of the entitlement state. it's insolvent. it's advanced in europe where they are out of money and we are going to get there in a couple of years. there is nothing in the speech about that. not even recognition there is a crisis. tall programs of the 20th century were enacted with the life expectancy is 62. medical technology is eventually non-existent. he said i'll take that, defend that and expanding the entitlement by adding obamacare he said i'll do energy that he spoke about a month after the first inauguration. with climate change and continue on the road in green energy stuff. he wants to create what he thinks he can in washington, new industry, string of solyndras until the end of time. expanding entitlement state in crisis. there is no change from who he was in 2009. he never has to be re-elected so he can be utterly unbound an
the americans who come here over the summer but you typically get a perceived more educated more sophisticated crowd belichick more politically aware. >> and people in the interest of having a good time. and that's sort of the difference between the average tourist season and inauguration is a lot of people are in a better mood. it makes things more fun when you are out and about on the town. >> people are so happy to be here and so excited to see different stuff. the people i ran into over the weekend, it's cool. like i said, i live in adams-morgan and i saw people on 18th street, which is a big party district if you are not familiar with it in d.c. people out there having a good time. it's hard to put a value on that, especially this day and age in our country where things aren't great for everybody. you can see people coming together to have a good time in a peaceful manner. scomplvrnlths. >> we were up to dinner friday night and last night. the restaurant was packed. it was a different mood. it wasn't just your average night in a restaurant. people were h

covering the cost their children's college education. >>> details are coming to light about costly renovations done in the bathroom of the interior department with taxpayer money. the renovations were done in 2007 to the office bathroom of then interior secretary. auditors have since reseemed the upgrades totaled $236,000 and included a new shower, refrigerator and expensive wood paneling. >> first and foremost the country is broke. we can't afford as taxpayers to remodel bathrooms or any rooms that don't need to be remodeled. >> the upgrade was part of a multimillion dollar remodeling of the headquarters in washington, d.c. >> san jose state university is launching a pilot project to offer affordable classes. starting later this month -- governor jerry brown was on hand. the four credit classes will cost $150. >> 16% of the students at cal state get out in four years. and the longer you stay the more you spend. so this is a big, huge problem with student debt approaching a trillion dollars. >> the pilot project will begin january 30th with just three classes in entry level math, c
make that happen for her. >> what kind of law is that? >> it will make child sexual abuse education mandatory in public schools in all 50 states. we're working to make that happen and hopefully we'll create real progress this year. >> you know, you moved from alabama, went to new york, 18 years old. you say sometimes you had $5 in your pocket. >> i did. >> just to eat and get around. you are scrappy here. >> yeah. >> people in washington, they're partisan. they don't get along so well. you're going to go state to state all year you're traveling. what are you going to say to bring folks to the table, even if they disagree? >> i think that the first thing we can do is happening right here. we can encourage everyone in america to become involved in their community and see things from a different angle. the sooner they do that, the better off we'll be. and the better off we'll be at listening to each other and understanding people's needs. that's the best way we can compromise sometimes is just to listen to each other and understand what's going on maybe in your neighbor's house and you
issues to disparity in education and health care, would also be put on the agenda, and those would also be addressed. certainly a lot of that has not happened, and there is certainly a disappointment across large sectors of the black community. but it is also realistic also a sense of the constraint that the president has had. and it is not just about the president. it is also bought congress, about state houses, and about governors. there is a broader political strategy that has to enfold to achieve some of the things that people hoped would happen when president obama was elected. host: barbara, anything to add to that? guest: it is often hard to maintain the kind of levels of excitement from the first inaugural to the second, and that applies to any president, particularly this one because the expectations were so high. i compared it to a second marriage. hard to rekindle that sparked sometimes. perhaps it is the more like renewing the vows. the american people ought to fall in love again with the president. they want to have that hope and expectation. there are lots of people here.
. it happens because of an election and then it means going online, it means doing rallies, it means educating your neighbors at church and the workplace and in school. >> now, you're using the word takers in this speech, i mean going right after the right and a reminder of people what the election was about. i looked right across at paul ryan when he said it. i mean, given the republicans parties and their positions right now, can he get this agenda done? >> i think republicans sometimes look to the next election, too. and when they think about how the demographics are changing, how the philosophy of young people is changing, i the they understand that when you're talking about this 47%, the takers, it's veterans and people who paid the medicare and realize it's workers that aren't making much money, that are making $11, $12 an hour. if republicans don't listen, they pay a price in elections. that's why i'm of the miptimist we can reach an agreement on these really important proposals. >> do you think that republicans are getting that the country has changed, the demographics has changed, 195
to worry about half measures. the second thing is you have a got a president who is been educated, some say through a hard way through an intransijent congress one who is figuring out how to use the leaver levers of power. one thing that struck me when looking at the people at the mall and going back and forth living to the inaugural address was how diverse it was and how enthusiastic it was. and people were estimated 600,000 to 800,000. that's a lot of people. that's a lot of power to put behind tim. he used it on the debt ceiling i expect to see him use it going forward. >> cenk: it is about the start and they are right about executive orders especially on climate change. that's exactly what we're going to talk about in the next segment. we'll talk about the new president obama taking executive action. we'll discuss that when we return. >> obama: some may still deny the overwhelming science but no one can avoid the raging fires, crippling drought and more powerful storms. they don't know it yet but they're gonna fall in love get married, have a couple of kids, [ children laughing ]
